A photography geek who started out in videography. After years of video work, I decided to pursue my passion -- photography. I began by photographing everything - weddings, landscapes, travel, etc - and eventually found my love of portraiture.
They say 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'. I say beauty is wherever you point your camera - and portraiture is art. No two people have the same canvas and that's what makes photography fascinating!
Today's cameras are high-tech marvels. They can do things previously unthought of. We have massive file sizes; cameras that shoot well in low-light; and shutter speeds that are so fast there's no black out between shots.
But with all the technological advances, photography is still 90% mental and 10% gear. The art of composition coupled with the ability to master lighting will always trump technology. If you can think it, compose it, and light it - you can capture it. it's that 'wonder' factor that keeps photography fresh!
